The memorial zone was established to commemorate border guard soldiers in Quang Ninh Province who fought to the last breath on February 17, 1979 to protect the country’s border and sovereignty.

At the venue, the prime minister also delivered Tet wishes and gifts to ethnic minority people in Quang Duc Commune, Hai Ha District and Hai Son Commune, Mong Cai City.

He encouraged these residents to continue following the guidelines, policies, and laws of the Party and state, complying with pandemic control measures, and contributing to building a border of peace, friendship, and development.
